I came up with a bunch of resolutions over at the other blog (New Year's Blogging Resolutions) full of ideas about better content, longer and more thoughtful writing, new perspectives, and more thoughtful criticism.
But just a few days later I'm pretty sure I've already broken some of them, and who cares what I think I should do to be a better blogger, anyway? The real question is what you think I should do to make this blog better.
Just for starters, I could stop doing the morning news roundup -- or do a bigger, better version.
I could post blog entries more frequently, or whittle them down.
I could include more news from other places.
I could switch over to Facebook comments so that comments would be a little less mean (and a lot less anonymous).
I could write more opinion/commentary -- or less.
I could focus on specific schools rather than central office.
I could hire someone to go to meetings and write them up for everyone. I could learn how to FOIA.
What else? I'm all ears.
The one thing I can't do, alas, is agree with you more often; that's what your mom's for. I'm here to make you think, aggravate you as often as I agree with you, and do the same with the other side.
And I can't move back to Chicago (though I'm going to be back in town later this week).
Feel free to share your own resolutions for yourself even if you don't have any for me.
